Just take one minute to LOOK AT THIS
This is a chart showing the leading causes of death in the US.
The bars in red are cause by diet and obesity.
—> Look at how they compare to something like homicide, a fear that many people have and something that is plastered all over the front page.
However, poor nutrition, an ever-growing problem in the US is not being addressed.
THE ANSWER TO THESE DISEASES ARE GOOD NUTRITION
I am not saying people need to be skinny, or have a thigh gap or six pack or any of that fucking nonsense. fuck what you look like, thats not what matters.
but WHAT YOU EAT MATTERS.
the saying “you are what you eat” is actually true!
Your body needs the correct vitamins and nutrients in order to heal itself. These diseases in red can be prevented through proper diet and nutrition! (Note - I know that not all cancer cases are preventable or caused by nutrition, but some are preventable with the right nutrition)
America needs to see change. We will most likely be the first generation to experience a shorter lifespan than our parents.
Please take some time to read abotu nutrition, plant based diets and the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle.
